We tried to get a room at the Middle Beach Lodge, but they were all booked up, so we decided to head to Ucluelet, just south of where we were staying and found the West coast Motel. Nothing glamorous but clean. We checked in at 12:15 pm and got booked into a Whale Watching tour for 1:00 pm. It was a three hour tour.... ha ha ha, but it was well worth it. We saw two humpback whales feeding, so amazing. We were in a zodiac type of vessel that sat 10 people. We also saw a black bear looking for lunch on a beach. It was amazing, and once again we have photos and possibly a couple of movies, but due to technical difficulties...yada yada yada.... Once we got back we were starving.... the woman who owns the motel had provided some options for dinner and let me tell you this town is much smaller than Tofino and kinda of sleepy but the restaurant we went too was definitely a five star and you needed a five star budget to go to it.... but once again well worth it. It was a tapas type restaurant, we had Tuna and salmon and scallops.... yummy.... and chocolate for dessert.... Anyway, am tired and we need to get up early tomorrow, we are going to travel to Comox to catch a ferry back to Powell River. Don't think I have mentioned this yet but we are looking at a 5 acre piece of land near Lund, BC on the main land. ( approx. 5 hours from Vancouver - via two ferries and some highway). Keep your fingers crossed for us, this could be our retirement property..... very excited....
